Whether they’re for the kids’ rooms or guest bedrooms, king single trundle beds are roomy and functional pieces of furniture that solve the problem of limited space.
A trundle bed is essentially two beds in one. The bottom bed sits very low to the ground and tucks in nice and snug under the main top bed, freeing up space when the spare bed isn’t needed and providing a speedy solution for sleepovers. Called ‘trundles’ because of their handy castor wheels, these genius space savers are guaranteed to get years of use in busy families, and in a king single size, they’ll see the kids right through from toddlerhood to the teenage years.
Ready to find the perfect bed for the kids’ rooms? We’ve scoured the country and shortlisted the king single trundles that the whole family will love.
What is the point of a king single trundle bed?
- They are perfect for growing kids. Singles quickly become a bit too snug for fast-growing kids, but king singles can easily see them right through to the teen years.
- The spare bed is out of sight. With a trundle that slides right under the main bed, you’re able to keep the floor clear space and the room looking tidy even while houseguests are still around.
- The trundle doubles as storage space. And no family can ever have too much storage! Instead of storing a mattress, use the space for bedding, toys and linen.
- You’re all set for sleepovers! Whether it’s cousins or best mates, sooner or later you’ll have little houseguests under your roof. A trundle keeps kids together in the same room but in the comfort of their own beds.
- They look great! More luxe than a single, but not as imposing as a double, a king single looks just right. Paired with a beautiful quilt cover, bedside tables and a bedroom rug, it’s a room you’ll be happy to invite guests into.
